Class of 2021 Senior Portrait Information

Candid Color Photography is your school’s official senior portrait photographer. The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented and has changed how we need to conduct senior portraits. Rest assured that the health and safety of seniors, families, school staff, and Candid Color staff is our highest priority. 

We have made the following adjustments in order to achieve this goal: Senior portraits are scheduled for your school on the following dates:

Wednesday-Thursday, August 19-20, 2020

Location: First Colonial High School Main Gym and Aux Gym

Appointments are available from 8:30am until 3:40pm

You MUST schedule an appointment time online at the following link:

FAQs
  • Why are we not offering tux and drape for Class of 2021 senior portraits? I heard other schools in the area are?  School Leadership, the Yearbook and Candid Color made the decision this summer that it would be the safest option not to supply shared tuxedos and drapes as in years past due to Covid-19. We made this decision to protect the student body and the photographers. 
  • May I still wear a tux or drape for my senior portrait? Yes, but you must supply your own.
  • Will a cap and gown option be available? At the current time, no. It is our hope that later in the school year we may be able to offer this to our senior class if we can do so safely with shared caps and gowns.

Additional Senior Portrait Information

Senior portraits should be taken by Candid Color, the professional photographer for First Colonial. Students who are photographed by Candid Color will have their poses posted online usually within 72 hours. Make sure you select a formal portrait with a medium to dark blue clouded background. The selected picture should also be in portrait, not landscape format.

Seniors should see Mr. Roth in room 406/408 with any questions regarding their senior portrait.

Seniors who choose to use a different studio must make sure that studio has our school’s specifications as the yearbook reserves the right to reject any non-compliant portraits. If you use another studio other than Candid Color you must verify your images have been sent electronically to Mr. Roth.

Approved studios having our specifications are;
Forrest
Henline
Havens
Hayne
Holman
Knox
McIntosh
Joseph Moss
Trahadias

Seniors not using Candid Color must make sure the other studio has the specifications, and that they will deliver the selected portrait to Mr. Roth no later than February 1st, 2021. After that date, we cannot guarantee the photo will appear in the book.
